Eric Benet Announces Album Release Date, Talks Good R&B

R&B crooner Eric Benet will release his fifth studio album, ‘Lost in Time,’ November 23rd. The set is the follow is the follow-up to Benét’s ultra-romantic 2008 album Love & Life, which was nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award for “Best R&B Album.” Led by the first single “Sometimes I Cry,” the disc also features duets Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi and the O’Jays Eddie Levert. ‘Lost In Time’ is a sumptuous homage to and an expansion of the sweet soul of the 1970’s. “I want people to remember what music is and what it can feel like; and to do that, I knew the record had to be all about the musician and the actual song,” says Benét. “The desire to do that took me all the way back to that time—around 1972 through 1976—and like a lot of others, my development as an artist is a direct result of being immersed in that era.” In support of ‘Lost in Time,’ Benet will also hit the road With Fantasia and Kandi for the “Back to Me” tour. “There’s so much to be depressed about right now and I think this more so than ever that you need to remember how good it feels to get back to the real. People just need to have some feel good R&B in their lives,” Benet says. Eric Benet made his solo debut with 1996’s True To Myself. Three years later came A Day In The Life, which contained the single “Spend My Life with You” featuring Tamia. The song went to #1 on the R&B charts, was certified gold, and nominated for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group along with a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Album Male. In 2004 following a difficult time in his life, the singer released his third and pensive album Hurricane. His next album Love & Life arrived in September 2008. The CD debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and included the crowd-favorite “Chocolate Legs” and the smash “You’re The Only One” which spent 4 weeks straight at #1 on Urban AC radio. Love & Life garnered two Grammy nominations—including Best R&B album.
